About this course

Level-up your employer engagement.

Are you hearing things like “apply online” or “we’re not hiring”? Are you making initial contact but things don’t progress? No problem! This course has you covered. And that’s not all – we’ll show you how to navigate the common obstacles people face when out and about meeting local employers. We understand the challenges of employer engagement and we’re here to help you overcome them.

This course is perfect for employment specialists, supervisors, occupational therapists and vocational support workers who support IPS clients into work.

The training will cover:

  • The challenges of employer engagement
  • Myth busting: the misconceptions of employer engagement
  • Making the perfect introduction
  • Progressing past the initial introduction
  • Managing employers’ concerns (and yours)
  • Building relationships that feel natural
  • How IPS benefits employers
  • Sharing personal information with employers (disclosure)
  • … and more


“Now, I will engage in meaningful conversations with employers without overthinking it in my head”

“The part of the training experience that I found most helpful was overcoming employer concerns, introducing yourself to the employer (first stage) and asking questions to build that initial rapport with the employer.”

“As a result of the training… I will not be afraid to book, face to face visits with employers”

“This built my confidence to continue with face-to-face EE.”
